Be Scene Magazine Celebrates the Launch of its latest issue - Rebellion

Be Scene Youth have just finished launching Rebellion Issue. It is the 6th issue in Be Scene’s History.

Rebellion features some amazing creative writing and a graffiti photoessay against the backdrop of a rebellious layout design. Of course, what does it all mean anyway, “rebellious”? Well, you will have to check out the zine for that.

Copies are around at Regent Park Focus, Flemo Health Centre and TNO’s Youth centre. It is coming to more places around Flemo Park, T-Park and O’Connor communities soon. In the meantime, get your digital copy here.

At the latest event this past Thursday with about 25 people at TNO’s youth centre, we distributed the fresh copies, got together for some food, had lots of fun and joined Making Noise! Gender Violence and Community Accountability Media Project (GVCAMP) and TNO’s VOICES. Making Noise! is an initiative of Urban Alliance for Race Relations. VOICES is a young women’s group that meet every Thursday at TNO’s Youth Centre.

Ashley Alexis McFarlance and Helen Yohannes, the facilitators of the GVCAMP were back, and Tania Taber and Sarena Surybali who run VOICES joined us. Then there was Azza Abarro and myself on the team. For our group activity, we shared an object/accessory that we had with us and reflected on what it means for us. And then we shared the Rebellion issue and worked on producing our media.

Maryam Idroos, guest editor of Rebellion Issue, provided us with a video shot. Her poem featured alongside Sabeeha Isahque’s in an attractive layout design by Shaili Chibba.

The timing couldn’t have been better. It was a fantastic opportunity to reveal Rebellion at the GVCAMP as the young women finish their media projects. Media from the workshops is going to feature in Be Scene next issue.

Yes, we at Be Scene have been staying busy here rolling magazine after magazine…And Be Scene can’t wait to get started on reviewing new submissions and laying it down for the next issue. And we have a deadline for submissions:

Early Bird Deadline: Wed, Mar 2nd
Extended Deadline for VOICES and GVCAMP group: Mon, Mar 21
